It comes in a quart sized metal can. Looks like peanut butter, it allows for proper torquing of bolts - a type of thread lubricant.
It is sold by Detroit dealers. I have a can of it in my tool box at work. I'll get you a part number from the can tomorrow.
I don't know of an equivalent product, somebody else here might be able to help with that info. I only use the "peanut butter" during assembly.  Cool

From my experience in rebuilding diesel engines...it just Assembly Grease and can be bought from your local auto parts store.

We to, always referred to it as Peanut Butter as a slang.  I can't imagine why the specs for DD should be different than any other engine manufacturer...unless they sell it under their own label.

Many companies do that with non-propietary items just for more profit...and I wouldn't put that past Roger.

On the big diesel powerplants (GM) on railroad diesel locomotives I think they still use a product called Lubriplate.
